what columnist and single mother wendy fon tan wrote in the "huffington post." i'm sick of the cliche single parents especially mothers are lazy welfare cases and that their children are growing up to be delinquent. ask president obama. what do you say to women who felt demeaned and dehumanized after the governor's remarks? >> well, i think any woman who's out there raising a child should be praised for doing the hard work that that entails. i think it's -- you're doing two jobs. you're taking care of them financially and raising them on your own. that's a daunting task. i think what the governor is talking about and what we all agree on is the ideal situation, having a two-parent family that is the most ideal way to raise a family. that doesn't mean in any way we demean anyone whose circumstances prevent that from occurring for whatever reason. we should be praising single parents. i don't think the governor in any way did anything but try to talk about what the ideal situation is to raise a family. >> sean, quickly on this one if you could. libya. the argument that romney is trying

quite add up. as "the huffington post" reports, the bipartisan women's coalition mass gap approached both romney and his democratic challenger before the 2002 gubernatorial election and pressured him to sign a pledge to appoint more women if they get elected. the group's former chairwoman says romney had little personal involvement with the group. instead, romney tasked his female nominee for lieutenant governor, carey healey, to work with the organization. mass gap presented the binders and highlighted qualified applicants to healey after romney was elected. president obama called out romney's remark earlier today. >> i've got to tell you, we don't have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women, ready to learn and teach in these fields, right now. >> as for equal pay for equal work, romney's campaign is still struggling to come up with a response. following the debate, romney's senior adviser, ed gillespie, told "the huffington post," the governor would not repeal the lily ledbetter act. he was opposed to it at the time. he would not repeal it. we

have a feature in "the huffington post" newsletter which i hope all of our viewers receive in their inboxes, "the daily delaney downer," which inevitably has this horribly heartbreaking piece of sort of economic trivial or an anecdote. actually, you know, we too often discuss this stuff in terms of numbers and not actual stories. and what continues to happen across the country -- i mean, this is why they can't just, you know, tout the 7.8% unemployment numbers and be excited about that. and it is a very nuanced case. stew rothenberg was on the show last friday anding the these unemployment numbers have had absolutely no bearing on the metrics of the poll numbers because it's much more about a mood and whether people feel optimistic or pessimistic. >> first of all, "the daily delaney downer," was our human suffering correspondent. he's been doing this for a couple years now and he finds people of struggling in the economy. a lot of them have run out of insurance, a lot of them are long-term employed. if you've been out of work for two years, it's twice as hard to find a job as people

in "the huffington post," words of one sill belabel. this is it for mitt. >> it rhymes. >> he has to change the conversation, and do what you said, which is express clear, big, convincing, humane and understandable thoughts about he, how he can be the better person to take the economy forward and take the country forward. he said he wanted this to be about the economy. the romney -- the obama people have jammed the radar, romney's rar for six months, ago? now romney has 60 million people out there. he has to look at the camera and say, this is in simple, clear terms is how i'm going to help you and how we're going to fix the economy. >> same question to you. the economy looks better than romney does. that's the problem he faces. >> one of his biggest challenges tonight is to stand on that stage and convince people watching, something north of 60 million people will tune in, that he understands the lives and problems of average americans, ordinary americans, the people struggling to put food on the table. >> that would be a fraud, though, doesn't he? we've been watching this guy for w
